I am planning to attend Origins 2017 in Columbus, Ohio, and wanted to know about volunteering to GM. Can anyone provide information?

What did you want to know? Last I heard, there was still a need for GMs, but I do not know details.

The GM application is here: http://ohiopfs.org/origins/origins-gm-application/

Edit:

Card Game application here: http://ohiopfs.org/origins/origins-gm-application/

I am trying to register for PFS events, but am not finding them. Anyone know if they in the system?

I just got an e-mail regarding registration; it appears that there's a bug in the system. Registration is closed until Friday at 1. Try looking again then. The names of all PFS sessions begin with "Pathfinder Society Scenario".

Nope, I'm still having trouble. The only session I've seen so far is Pathfinder Society Academy (kid's track) game. I'm trying to get into a Friday evening slot game, and I can't find it by either the session # listed in the Origins spreadsheet or by checking all the RPGs on Friday from 7 to midnight.


Can we get a list of the events days and times..I cannot make heads or tails of the set up.

For a list of event days and times, there is the Event Grid on this page: http://originsgamefair.com/events/ (First orange button)

Locating events in the registration system can be a bit tricky since the registration system considers any event that ends at 12:00 midnight to span two days. The key then, is to search for "All" days, rather than a specific day. Don't forget to specify a category: "RPG" or "All".

Example: To register for the Saturday night special "8-99 The Solstice Scar", search for "Solstice Scar," "All," and "RPG." Each table of 6 has its own event code this year.

To view all the PFS events (18 pages worth!) you can search for "Pathfinder Society," All,", "RPG."

There are events all 5 days starting at 1:00 Wednesday through 1:00 Sunday. Start times are 8:00 am, 1:00pm, and 7:00 pm. There are games for Pathfinder Society, the Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild, and Pathfinder Society Academy (for the kids).

PS: Netapolis is not quite correct. Not all events have "Scenario" as part of the name. There are also modules, and card games, and the academy. (Oh my!). They *do,* however all start with "Pathfinder Society."

For your convenience, the PFS-only portion of the event grid.

Yep, that's the key. The system is really buggy, if you specify a day then it returns none of the night events. For a convention that's getting bigger by the year, they sure have a lot of technical problems they need to work through.

Less than 3 weeks, looking forward to it! Looking forward to Solstice Scar! Scar sounds really interesting, hopefully this interactive is as good as it sounds.

I don't know that this is considered the "official" Origins forum thread, but I want to say I am a HUGE fan of the event and encourage everyone to attend, but it has the absolutely worst website I've ever had to navigate. It is extremely non-intuitive, the event catalog appears to be a randomly organized list, and the filters do not work as expected. Its just a hot mess

I registered for The Solstice Scar Tier 3-4 and when it processed, gave me a Tier 1-2 ticket. I emailed the registration address with no response. I (think?) found the way to return a ticket for credit, but now I cannot find The Solstice Scar in the event catalog at all. So, now I'm completely without a ticket and at risk of missing out. Quite frustrating.

...and by the way, the PSA event is called Angel's Flight, not Angel's Wing

EDIT--Well, I finally found the listing (Thanks Cirithiel) and got my ticket. WOW, what a disaster.
